Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty on Wednesday took off to Jammu to visit the Vaishno Devi shrine. Her visit came on the day when the Mumbai Police filed a supplementary chargesheet against her husband Raj Kundra. The businessman was arrested by the crime branch in July for his alleged involvement in the porn apps case. Shilpa’s testimony, who has been named as a witness in the case, has said that she was busy with her life and was unaware of what her husband was upto.

Shilpa went for the yatra along with her good friend Akanksha Malhotra. The life in a Metro actor had also shared a self portrait with Akanksha where she is seen wearing a bright orange salwar-kameez.

Shilpa shared a few glimpses from her Vaishno Devi yatra on Instagram. Taking to Instagram story, Shilpa shared a video where she is seen riding a pony, and chanting ‘Jai Mata Di’ as she heads towards the temple.

Shilpa has been in news since July this year after the Mumbai Police arrested her husband Raj Kundra last month for allegedly producing and distributing pornographic clips on mobile apps. He is currently in jail.

Shilpa had taken to Instagram to share a statement on the matter. Stating that ‘the past few days have been challenging’, she wrote, “A lot of unwarranted aspersions on me cast by the media and (not so) well wishers as well. A lot of trolling/questions posed… not only to me but also to my family. MY STAND… I HAVE NOT COMMENTED YET and will continue to refrain from doing so on this case as it is subjudice, so please stop attributing false quotes on my behalf.”

She further added that she and her family don’t deserve a media trial. “As a family, we are taking recourse to all our available legal remedies. But, till then I humbly request you – especially as a MOTHER – to respect our privacy for my children’s sake and request you to refrain from commenting on half-baked information without verifying the veracity of the same. I am a proud law-abiding Indian citizen and a hardworking professional for the last 29 years. People have put their faith in ME & I’ve never let anyone down. So, most importantly, I request you to respect my family’s and ‘my right’ to privacy in these times. We don’t deserve a media trial. Please let the law take its course. Satyamev Jayate!”
